If there is one thing I really love to do, it’s prepping meals ahead to save me tons of time from the kitchen. Especially now that little T has started primary school, it means I have to pack lunchboxes everyday. And so having a stash of healthy eats in the fridge can save me so much stress in the mornings.
Here are some of my favorite meal-prep friendly recipes which are easy to make, delicious, and nutritious.
Delicious fritters made with grated zucchinis and carrots which makes the perfect savory breakfast or lunchbox item. To serve, you can top with tomato sauce or greek yogurt and pair with a wide salad. They are freezer-friendly and can easily be re-heated in a toaster or on a pan.
Sweet, tangy turkey meatballs with a honey siracha glaze. The meatballs have veggies like mushrooms, capsicum for a healthier twist. You can sub the siracha with regular tomato sauce for a kid-friendly version. Perfectly pairs with brown rice or other grains like quinoa and even pasta.
Overnight oats flavored with banana and peanut butter and topped with pecans. It’s the perfect quick and healthy breakfast which you can even take with you wherever you go! Overnight oats store well in the fridge and become creamier the day after. You can reheat in the microwave if you opt for a warm breakfast and top with with fresh fruits and yogurt.
Tuscan inspired chicken recipe which is made with a tangy, lemon cream sauce and loaded with sundried tomatoes, and fresh spinach. This pairs perfectly with your grain of choice–from brown rice, quinoa, couscous, or wholegrain pasta.
This pasta dish has succulent prawns and slices of zucchini which is then flavored with sundried tomatoes and pesto sauce, making this a healthy dish that even kids will love. In place of zucchinis, you can also go for other fleshy veggies like eggplants or mushrooms. For vegetarian option, just skip the prawns and double the veggies added. Perfect for lunchboxes and stores well for up to 4 days in the fridge.
